1  Red-Heeled Sock HORSE in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sketchygirl on: February 25, 2008 02:58:26 PM

So it's finally finished! My lovely sock horse that I just HAD to make after I found a giant model of a horse. This little guy isn't squishy, it's tailored to fit over a really detailed horse sculpture. : ) The horseshoes are made of felt and contrast stitched on...the eyes are buttons, the yarn hair is rooted and the eyelashes/eye rim is embroidered.

It's all sewn by hand and I'm very proud! It turned out so cool (I think anyway). It probably took about 4 pairs of socks...this guy is pretty big: 19"H, 24"L, 8"W

2  Meet other crafty girls! This weekend! in Missouri by sketchygirl on: January 15, 2006 03:15:51 PM
Ok, so this isn't COMPLETELY craft-related, but I'm going to post it anyway:

I'm involved with an upstart roller-derby league here in st. louis.  We are going to have our first benefit show Friday, Jan 20th

The reason I post this is that: A.) I am a loyal craftster lover B.) we are still recruiting C.) we are still looking for volunteers and girls etc.

Once we break into teams we are going to have to sew costumes and such...and I think this might be right up some crafty girls alleys!

Anywho, here's the flyer:

I was so inspired by this little tampon guy: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72214.msg680577#msg680577 that I made my own plushie version:

He's not too thrilled.

A little backstory: I actually "found" craftster after googling "sock monkey costume" to find inspiration for making my boyfriend's costume and seeing smoking monkey's AWESOME one:


So this is my version of a sock monkey:

And I was Cheetara from the Thundercats

And here's us together:

I ended up being an "alternate" for the top 5 at a costume contest...a rented colonel sanders won  Angry

I am so jealous of the sockmonkey costume...especially since I promised my boyfriend I would make him one prior to seeing that photo! Now I'm intimidated!!!!

Last year I was She-Ra (I had never sewn anything before attempting this so be kind!)

This year I plan on being Cheetara from thundercats!

PS this is my first post and I think everyone on this site is so talented!!!
